It has nawed away a neet little hole and nibbled all the outer edges of the crackers. At first I saidm nah we can't have a mouse on board. How would it get here. The packet must have been chewed at home surely. A few minutes later, she pops out the hatch
with another food
itme that had also been chewed through. Uh oh, I think we have a stowaway.
Hi Alan, This happened to us 3 years ago. That's when we found out our cat was a factory reject. Anyhow, I found the same signs, dutifully reported them to the captain
and was scoffed at. Three weeks later the problem was so obvious that the captain
could not ignor it. We ended up setting traps and baiting them with peanut butter. We got 7 of them in a week and have not had the problem since. We can only guess that the mother mouse climbed our ropes to get onboard. In any case they made quite mess in a very short time.Lori
